Three Cameras from 2022: My favourite experiences this year

With the encouragement of Stephen Dowling of Kosmo Photo, a group of camera bloggers were asked to write about three cameras they discovered in 2022 and what each one meant to them. Well, I thought, why should they have all the fun? So I came up with the three cameras that I most enjoyed usingContinue reading “Three Cameras from 2022: My favourite experiences this year”

Some not so #ShittyDigital infrared trichromes, 18 December 2022

I’ve been making trichromes for the #1990sCameraChallenge using early digital cameras like the 1998 Sony Mavica MVC-FD81 and the 2000 Sony DSC-F505V. These have been fascinating to do, of course, but the quality has been a little … lacking.  So this time I wanted to use a better quality camera to see if the qualityContinue reading “Some not so #ShittyDigital infrared trichromes, 18 December 2022”

Infrared trichromes with the Sony DSC-F505V, 10 December 2022

Some trichromes for the #MillenniumCameraChallenge using the Sony DSC-F505V. I created a normal trichrome with red, green and blue filters  then made a digital aerochrome with an infrared filter, a red filter and a green filter for the red, green and blue layers, respectively.  I also made an infrared trichrome using a infrared, green andContinue reading “Infrared trichromes with the Sony DSC-F505V, 10 December 2022”

Infrared trichromes with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 10 December 2022

A little while ago I was trying to make some trichromes with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81. At the time I also took an infrared image using the 720nm Infrared filter, but I thought that the image was so poor that it could never be used for a trichrome.  However, some sage advice from a masterContinue reading “Infrared trichromes with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 10 December 2022”

More dull trichromes of the roundabout outside our house, 09 December 2022

After the fun yesterday with the Sony Cybershot DSC-P73, I thought it might be nice to try some #ShittyDigital trichromes of the roundabout with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81. It was another very dull day, but one day, I know, I’ll get a lovely trichrome blue sky.

A rather dull trichrome of the roundabout outside our house, 08 December 2022

I sourced some Sony Memory Sticks to go with the Sony DSC-F505V. The seller was actually selling a Sony Cybershot DSC-P73, a 4MP camera from 2004, but was including the Sticks as a part of the package. Personally, I consider that I paid 10€ for the memory sticks and received a free camera. It arrivedContinue reading “A rather dull trichrome of the roundabout outside our house, 08 December 2022”

Today I’ve been making some (really) #shittytrichrome, 03 December 2022

Today I thought I would try some digital trichromes with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81. To make trichromes I set the camera to black and white and took three photographs, using the red, green and blue Lomography filters. The images were processed with GIMP photo editor using each image as a layer for red, green andContinue reading “Today I’ve been making some (really) #shittytrichrome, 03 December 2022”

Today I’ve been experimenting with #trichrome, 26 November 2022

I’ve had some red, green and blue filters knocking around for ages, but never got around to using them. Today I thought I would try some digital trichromes with the Nikon Coolpix 990, a 3MP digital camera from the year 2000. First of all I set the camera to the ‘Rec M’ setting which rememberedContinue reading “Today I’ve been experimenting with #trichrome, 26 November 2022”

Checking out the infrared capability of the Nikon Coolpix 990, 25 November 2022

I’ve been suffering from GAS again. This time it’s this unusual looking camera, the Nikon Coolpix 990 from 2000. I actually wanted the first of this range of cameras, the 900, for the #ShittyCameraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge but I couldn’t find it. So this one will have to do (and I’m actually very happy with it). OfContinue reading “Checking out the infrared capability of the Nikon Coolpix 990, 25 November 2022”

A trip through the woods, 23 August 2022

After weeks of cloudless skies, this morning we awoke to a sky full of wispy cirrus clouds. It was the perfect weather to take out the full spectrum Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8 and the Urth 720nm Infrared filter, on our daily walk to the beach. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2022/08/a-trip-through-woods-23-august-2022.html

Street photography in the only street in Fetais, 23 August 2022

A recent Twitter poll was asking about street photography, which encouraged me to get out in Fetais with the full-spectrum Lumix  and the Urth IR filter. Now, where’s that street again? http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2022/08/street-photography-in-only-street-in.html

When a plan doesn’t quite come together, 08 August 2022

After a mixed start the sun came out and I took the chance to pop out to revisit a few places in Fetais near Meco with the full-spectrum Lumix  and the Urth IR filter. Unfortunately, as soon as I went out the clouds rolled in leaving a hazy and  cloudy day. Still, I persisted andContinue reading “When a plan doesn’t quite come together, 08 August 2022”

Finally the wind died down, 30 July 2022

After a few frustrating days, the wind died down and my plan to take the full spectrum Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8 and the Urth 720nm Infrared filter to the beach was a possibility.  Thankfully, the early afternoon sun made the trees glow in the sunlight and the photographs of our walk to the beach exceeded myContinue reading “Finally the wind died down, 30 July 2022”

Late afternoon in the woods, 26 July 2022

The original plan was to take the full spectrum Lumix and the Urth 720nm Infrared filter to the beach, but it was so windy I didn’t want to take any risks with the camera, I’ve already cleaned out one large grain of sand from the sensor and I didn’t want to go through that experienceContinue reading “Late afternoon in the woods, 26 July 2022”
